  雅思大作文范文

  People in developing countries are happier thanbefore while people in developed countries are nohappier than they used to be. Why? What lessoncan you learn from it?

  话题好像是问为什么在已开发的富国人民不如以前快乐,而相对的,在开发中的人民却是比以前快乐?又问从这种情形学得什么教训?

  Financially speaking, people are supposed to behappier when their incomes exceed expenses, butthe reverse seems to be happening to many peoplein some developed countries. In comparison, peoplein some developing countries with a much lower measure of per capita income appear to behappier in what they are actually able to buy within their earnings. The message seems clearenough: higher living standards do not necessarily add to happiness but excessive spendingcan certainly undermine it.

  It is hard to tell what does bring happiness when wealth may ironically fail as much aspoverty. In countries full of comforts and luxuries, there are chances that people are beginningto count their troubles in the presence of rising living costs. This is very unlike people indeveloping countries who make positive sense of life by counting blessings and joys. Even inrich countries, life may become more stressful and less enjoyable under the pressure ofincreasingly higher living standards from time to time. What is worse, job security is already amajor concern particularly among less skilled employees who are nervous about impendinglayoffs. Besides, the reality of financial crisis is spreading from one developed country toanother, further complicating the difficult situation and fueling the anger of many less happypeople.

  People in most developing countries have reasons to feel happier than before, probablybecause they live their lives forward. Being relatively poor, they are happier in knowing who theyreally are, then doing what they need to do in order to have what they want. To themhappiness is more like a direction for motivation than a place for leisure. Also, they are morecapable of recognizing and appreciating what they do have. In short, they feel happier exactlybecause they do not expect too much happiness. This mentality is different from people indeveloping countries who have large incomes but also large expenses, often resulting innegative balance sheets.

  In sum, the only way to avoid being unhappy in life, whether referring to a developedcountry or a developing country, is to have happy thoughts about living within their means andhaving something to hope for. Per capita income can no longer be the only measure foreconomic happiness, judging from the fact that people in developed countries are not as happyas they used to be. Without any doubt, the lesson about being happy is for an individual as wellas for a country to perform a balancing act between incomes and expenses.
